What a Week

Near the Water, 6 x 8

I haven't posted the others yet, but this is the last painting I did during Jill Carver's workshop. We were near Salado Creek (big water and tree vistas) a lot, and I gravitated toward something simpler at the end of the three days--we were all tired from absorbing so much good information, and the sun takes its share as well.  But, what a treat, and what a week!

So glad you had a great time - you will be chewing on that info and finding ways to apply it for a long time.

Hi Julie. Your paintings from Jill's workshop are wonderful! It's exciting to come across your work and to learn of your artist friends. I was in the area last summer; did lots of plein air; had in-depth girl/artist time with Carol on a camping/painting trip; and even got to know my way around Austin a bit! Carol and I tried to hook up with Virginia and Robin, but the timing wasn't right. I have a clear memory of what the heat will do to you there. It's a challenge to push through to the end for sure. I wish I had known of ya'll before my visit- it'd have been a blast. Maybe next time.

Hi Julie:
It was very nice to meet you at Jill's workshop. One of the things I like most about workshops is meeting new artists, especially talented ones like you. You did some great work this week. I will be checking back regularly and add a link on my blog so others can visit you as well.

Keep up the good work.

Hi Julie. Really enjoyed painting with you at Jill's workshop this week. One of the things I enjoy most about workshops is meeting talented artists such as yourself. I will be checking out your blog regularly and if you don't mind add a link on my blog so others can enjoy your work as well. Keep up the good work.

Thanks, Rusty. I agree about half the fun is meeting other artists, and this was such an impressive group, it was a treat being a part of it. I look forward to keeping up.

Sally--next time you're in town I'd love to meet you. Sounds like you all had a great time--it's hard not to when you're around such talented people!
